How do you know if your device is “In-Tolerance”? Why the location of the measurement is more important than you may realize.

June 23, 2017 12:00:00

Calling an instrument “In Tolerance” is about location, location, location. It’s also about the uncertainty of the measurement, but a bad location is going to raise the Probability of False Accept (PFA) significantly. The probability of false accept is the likelihood of a lab calling a measurement “In Tolerance” when it is not. This post deals with exposing some bad practices labs make by calling equipment good when it is not.
